welcome to my journal

Hi friend! My name is Jessica, I am a newborn and family photographer based in Washington Dc. I find it an absolute honor to photograph you with your little ones. I adore baby toes and that unforgettable newborn smell. 

Until something is taken away you never fully know how much it means to you. It has felt SO good to go back to photographing families again! I’ve become a big fan of front porch sessions. It’s easy, comfortable because it’s at home and always so unique. Enjoy the Bojedla family’s summer front porch session. […]

As a newwborn photographer, I am always looking for beautiful swaddles to take along with me to my newborn photo sessions. They also make lovely client gifts as well. You can buy just any swaddle either, they need to be a soft fabric for the baby’s skin and also stretch well for wrapping. My sister-in-law […]

I’ve felt so bad for all the couples that have had to reschedule their weddings over the past two months. I will say, I don’t mind the small, family weddings though. The intimate, stress-free days have been beautiful to watch. Erik and Sierra had a lovely day! The weather was mild and sunny. We met […]

Erik and Sierra -Outdoor, Summer Wedding

I remember my Grandma Myers tending to her plants with such care and they would grown and blossom and I always thought how easy it looked. Well, until I tried it for myself I didn’t realize the time and diligence you have to spend to get a house full of lovely greens. But through Covid […]

If you know me well, then you know I adore a good love story and bonus pints for anything sappy. Sam and Ryan were planning to be married this past Saturday but due to Covid everything was postponed a year. Since they both enjoy surprises, Sam planned a surprise dinner on the rooftop of Union […]

Sam and Ryan -Union Market, DC

We couldn’t have asked for a more perfect morning for their maternity session. We met early to beat the heat and there is always less people in DC the earlier you go out. Both of us were excited we got this session in after the quarantine haircut but before the baby arrives. 🙂 We started […]

The Lea Family |Washington, DC Maternity Photographer

Last Friday we celebrated our tenth wedding anniversary. And by celebrated, I mean we both opened the ice cream shop and then I drove to PA to photograph a wedding. Several years ago I would have looked at us and felt sad. Sure, a trip to Puerto Rico (our favorite place on the earth) would’ve […]

Maternity Dresses for Photo Sessions

When Gretchen reached out to me about getting photos for their adoption profile book, I was so excited! Adoption means so much to me and it felt like a played a small part in their story. The session started out with a dance party, bubbles in the back yard and lots of giggles. Then they […]

The Gertiser Family |Adoption Profile Book Session, Washington DC

Over the past year Grace has become a dear friend to me. Just like her name, she is gracious, sweet and so caring. More than once, she has “checked in” with me at just the right moment. She loves the Lord and loves the children she nannies for with such gentleness. We had fun walking […]
